Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate on today's release of new federal jobs numbers.

"Once again, using Scott Walker's hand-picked numbers, we see evidence that it's just not working.Ā Today's federal jobs numbers show once again that Scott Walker is failing Wisconsin when it comes to his number one campaign promise. Under Scott Walker, Wisconsin continues to be out-paced by most of the nation and our neighbors in the Midwest when it comes to job growth, and too many Wisconsinites are still struggling to find family-supporting jobs. Yet rather than focus on creating jobs, Walker and Republicans in the legislature continue to focus on divisive social issues that do nothing to improve our economy."
